The Knights of Mayhem

So imagine my confusion when I come out to the barn this morning and see a NICE, ritsy, 6 horse trailer parked in our lot (lets remember that I work at a non-profit therapy farm that barely scrapes by). Now imagine that I'm just walking along, totally puzzled, when I glance over at our corral and see a LARGE, drop-dead gorgeous percheron stallion standing, totally content, chewing some grass. WHAAAAAT?!

Now I knew that dispite the fact that we love to dream about having a draft for our therapy one day, theres no way we could afford that, especially right now. So ofcourse, I knew something was up. I ask the BO and I'm shocked to find out that there are actually six of these 2,500 pound beasties right here on our farm, and not just any old work horses....no.

They're actually the six full-contact Jousting horses (not just the fake performance horses, but the REAL thing) from The Knights of Mayhem that airs on National Geographics every Tuesday, and they're boarding with us for the night while they're performing in Liberty County! ( Knights of Mayhem | Full Contact Jousting )

So ofcourse, I just HAD to take some pictures ;)


Sadly, I wasn't able to get any pictures of the other two blacks or the flaxen chestnut before they left for the joust, but I did get some pretty snazzy shots of the other three!


The big black stud that I first discovered ;D as well as my favorite little disabled kid, meeting him <3



The other black that I got a picture of. He was very interested in us and a total sweety.


I believe that they said this guy is a freisian x perch. They each eat an entire bale of hay every day o.o










And then the big paint colored guy. No clue as to what he is but my guess is partially Gypsey Vanner or something, considering his coloring and the fact that he's 100% draft.


My favorite picture.










Sadly I was still working when they left to the joust, so I didn't get to go see them, but just meeting these guys was great!


Oh, and Sour says HAIIIII! What a goof.

I would have died from the excitement O_O Jousting is one of my favorite sports, that's just awesome you got to see some real professional horses. And they look so sweet too... I think some Tia hugs for them are in order

Hi Sour! Nice getting in on the photo action Great pics! You're so lucky!

Aren't they? I just wanted to hug them all. When I think jousting I think big,mean,scary monster horse but these guys were right up there begging for kisses every time someone walked by. Total babes. I wouldn't want to be in their way when they were on the run though! My goodness, those boys had some big feet.

Anywhere a camera and carrots are, Sour can't be too far behind XD you should of seen her dancing around, talking to those big old drafties. All 34" and 225 pounds of her was ready to take them on!

The pinto actually looks like a spotted draft. Not nearly enough feathering to be a gypsy. Honestly, it looks like you took my boy and fast-forwarded a few years!

And the second black (with the big blaze...think you said he might be friesian/perchie?) looks like he could be my Aires' face twin! Same soft eyes, sweet expression and big ol' clunky head. Lol
